American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) Lifeshots Photo Contest

The Academy has created a photo contest to feature a one-of-a-kind gallery that will inspire all viewers to overcome their many challenges and returned for its 9th year! The 2021 deadline to submit photo(s) was Wednesday, September 1, 2021. We had many creative submissions!

What We Look For

Photos of individuals affected by cerebral palsy and other childhood-onset disabilities in the midst of doing what they enjoy, completing a basic task, or celebrating a major accomplishment. The photos can contain family members and care providers but we must have a photo release for each person in the photo.

Please include a title that is unique to the ability being highlighted in the photo. The title/phrase will be mounted next to the photo for display at the AACPDM 75th Annual Meeting. The top three winners will be announced upon the conclusion of the meeting.

Grand Prize

The 1st place winner will receive a professionally mounted enlargement of their submitted photo, free basic conference registration to the 76th Annual Meeting to be held September 21-24, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and a $500 Amazon gift card!

All photographers will be recognized on the photos displayed.
